"battery is not charging" in Macbook

Hello, I have a Macbook which is 1 year old and recently all of a sudden my Macbook battery stopped charging? The status is always 0% even if it is plugged with Magsafe and it always shows as "Battery is not charging". As it is also out of warranty I cannot order for a battery replacement. So can anyone tell me how to solve the problem of "battery is not charging" in Macbook? Thank you

Re: "battery is not charging" in Macbook

Try the process listed at that KB article. Resetting the PMU/SMC may resolve your issue, it's certainly a process I could see a service technician trying. It's not an end-all / be-all fix, but give it a crack and report your findings.

Re: "battery is not charging" in Macbook

Have you tried to reset the SMC (System Management Controller). This might help.
Check your battery connections to be sure they are clean.
This may help also.
Apple: Use and cleaning of MagSafe power connector

Re: "battery is not charging" in Macbook

Try resetting the SMU as follows:
  1. If the computer is on, turn it off.
  2. Disconnect the AC Adapter and remove the computer's battery.
  3. Press and hold down the power button for 5 seconds and then release the button.
  4. Reconnect the battery and AC Adapter.
  5. Press the Power button to restart the computer.
